Of course it was ludicrous. Since Ighalo signed Martial scores or assisted on average every single match in the PL. If that isn’t firing on all cylinders then I’m not sure what Ighalo scoring a couple times against lower division sides in cups is meant to be. It was absolutely ludicrously stupid at the time, same as it is now. Martial was our best player with Bruno the second half of the season. Ighalo scored a couple goals against lower league opposition while also missing a bunch of absolute sitters and struggling to control the ball.Seems ludicrous now but wasn't at the time. Tony wasn't firing on all cylinders and Ighalo was a muscular target that made things happen around him, for a short spell at least. God knows where it's all disappeared to. We seem almost unique in the way ALL our players seem to time their poor patches together.
Thankfully it looks like we’ll never have to watch him take the pitch again.
